There is a spot in Collinsville, CT that we love to photograph. And while the entire town is picturesque, and brimming with New England charm, we love being where we were with Rachel & Nick for their engagement photos. The whole location has an incredible visual juxtaposition with the deep reds and blues of the historic axe factory, and the dark and light stone from the Farmington River. And the coolest, most serendipitous part of it all? It’s that all of the times we have been there we have always met our couples right outside the Crown & Hammer Restaurant & Pub. Which coincidentally Nick’s family just happens to own! Needless to say, they are both very familiar with the area and were super relaxed and ready for our time together. We loved their interaction, and they couldn’t stop smiling and laughing the entire time they were with us, which of course translated fabulously to their photos. Have a look!
